On Friday 22nd July a collection of XX century paintings has been presented at Villa Monastero. The collection includes different interesting works belonging to the Provincia di Lecco, which have been exposed for the first time in the Sala Polvani.
The President of Provincia di Lecco Alessandra Hofmann, the provincial councillor delegated to Culture, Tourism and Villa Monastero Fiorenza Albani and the curator Anna Ranzi, have presented this important exposition; this initiative is related to the process of enhancement started in 2020 to give value to the last century’s artists who worked in the Lecco area.
Some paintings in fact are important examples of local artistic events: they testify the participation of various artists to exhibitions in the Lecco area but also in other territories and abroad.
All the paintings represent the Lecco area, with different views of local landscapes.
The presentation has been also an opportunity to visit the exposition “Trame Lariane – Trame d’arte e moda”, realized by Villa Monastero together with Villa Carlotta of Tremezzina and Villa Melzi of Bellagio, thanks to the collaboration of the “Istituto Setificio Paolo Carcano” and the contribution of the “Fondazione Setificio”.
